    We'll see how it goes with Rod...

    He says his filing system is in disarray.

    I was quite surprised to see Healeys today...

    Driving towards Alice Springs, along a straight stretch of desert road, about eight Healeys in convoy. Fumbled the camera trying to get it up quickly and only got the last two with this very poor shot:

    I know the feeling Ray - I am trying to sort and then resort my photos as I have already used a number Grr.

    The International Bahamas Speed Week was a huge event on the North American calender, with works teams attending even Europeans in the 1950's 60's
    In 1963 Chevrolet with Corvette Grand Sports went with a team of three cars #50,#65 and #80. The first event for the cars.

    I knew that the Healeys I saw the other day were doing something special...

    So I googled and found on Facebook:

    This morning eight big Healeys, led by Charlie and Linda Mitchell, set off from Gooseberry Hill on the start of their marathon 25 day trip around half of Australia. The other seven cars belong to members of the Victorian Austin Healey Club.

    They had all left their cars in Perth after the recent National Rally held here in April. Their return journey will take them up the west coast to Darwin then down through the centre of the continent to Alice Springs then on to Port Augusta.

    There the Victorian contingent will turn left and head home to Melbourne and the Mitchells will turn right and head home to Perth across the Nullarbor. For those not familiar with Australian geography, that means a journey of some 9500 KMs for Charlie and Linda. Wishing them all a safe and fun filled journey.
    Check here:

    I thought there was about eight of them, and they were all nicely polished too. Not only that, but Rod knows Charlie Mitchell.
